2018 Fashion Looks

By: Maya Benmokhtar


Personally, fashion has always been a major aspect of who I am. I feel that fashion is a way to express myself. Anyone can have style, it doesn’t matter who you are, what body shape you are, what race you are, the length of your hair, what size you wear; fashion is everywhere.


Coco Chanel once stated “Fashion is a statement, not a style [...] Fashion is fit for all sizes for all people of all ages. Fashion is an act of personal self-expression, not an excuse to be pretty, popular and charismatic.”


To me, fashion is really important, a lot of people base their first thoughts about you based on the way you are dressed. Having my own style and not copying my peers is important to me, and I will continue to live up to being a unique individual.


When I was younger and immature, I would often find that people copied my style and the way I wore certain clothes; now that I’ve matured, I’ve realized I should be proud that others look up to me and what I wear. After all, Oscar Wilde stated that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!”


I hope after taking a look at my fashion tips and thoughts, you feel inspired to create a look that is uniquely yours.
